The Tampa Bay Rays and the Oakland Athletics will both be gunning for a victory on Tuesday when they meet at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Left hander Blake Snell will take the mound for the Rays to start this game. Snell is 0-5 this season with a 5.02 ERA.

Snell’s opponent in this one will be Chris Smith. The Athletics right hander has a 4.50 ERA to go along with a 0-0 record this season.

Snell scattered four hits and four walks over five scoreless innings against the Cubs in Chicago on July 5 but remained winless in 10 starts this year as the bullpen squandered a 3-0 lead. It was a solid turnaround for the 24-year-old native of Washington state, who surrendered a total of 16 runs in 15 2/3 frames over his previous three outings – all losses. Snell made his first career start against the Athletics last season, allowing two runs and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings of a no-decision in Oakland.

Smith did not factor in the decision at Seattle on July 8 after allowing three runs and six hits over six innings in his season debut – and first major-league start. The 36-year-old Californian has gone 4-3 with a 3.16 ERA in 15 games (12 starts) for Triple-A Nashville this year. Smith entered 2017 with a 1-0 record, one save and a 4.58 ERA in 63 career relief appearances.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 107-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Tampa Bay Rays look to inch closer to first place in the American League East when they visit the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday for the middle contest of their three-game set. Tampa Bay climbed within two games of Boston for the top spot in the division after edging Oakland 3-2 in the series opener.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs to extend his hitting streak to 10 games while Adeiny Hechavarria also recorded a pair of hits, matching the total of the Athletics’ entire lineup. Longoria has collected four multi-hit performances during his streak and is 5-for-8 over his last two contests. One of Oakland’s hits came in the ninth inning, when All-Star Yonder Alonso led off with a double and scored on a wild pitch to tighten things up. Khris Davis belted his team-leading 26th home run to improve to 4-for-11 with two blasts and three RBIs over his last three contests as the Athletics fell to 3-1 on their six-game homestand.

In their last action, Oakland was a 3-2 loser on the road against the Rays. Bettors on Tampa Bay at -105 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Tampa Bay won its last outing, a 3-2 result against the Athletics on July 17. Bettors who backed the Rays at -105 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
